Managed Advisory Investment Services

Our in-house investment team are able to manage our clients portfolios on a bespoke and highly personalised Managed Advisory basis, including:

  • General Investment Accounts
  • ISAs
  • SIPPs
  • Private Family Fund Structures

Discretionary Management Investment Services

Whilst we as a firm have not sought, and therefore do not have discretionary permissions to offer in-house discretionary investment management services, we are able to independently recommend a choice of out-sourced top city institutions Discretionary Management Services for clients who prefer to have their portfolios managed without the need for them to be consulted prior to changes being made within their portfolio(s).

We are able to match the firm we feel most appropriately matches our clients service requirements and investment objectives of a discretionary investment manager, and we will provide ongoing intermediated services between our clients and the appointed discretionary management firm in terms of performance reporting and attending meetings with them and our clients as required.

Tax Efficient Investments

We undertake high level asset allocation between equities, debt instruments, cash and money markets, property portfolios, commodities and alternative investments.

We can apply our portfolio management services to General Investment Accounts (ie: portfolios not held within a tax sheltering wrapper), ISA portfolios, family fund structures, SIPPs, SSASs, Offshore Bonds and private OEIC sub-funds.

Above Benchmark Performance

We consistently produce results above industry benchmarks.

“BACA” – for company funds, charity funds, pension funds, trust settlements and private portfolios that need to be managed very conservatively with personalised targeted returns net of fees, along with capital preservation being the overriding objectives – we are pleased to be able to put together a bespoke Private Office Asset Management low risk “Bespoke Alternative to Cash Accounts” – typically benchmarked against the Bank of England Base Rate + 2%.

We have a consistent and successful track record of protecting capital and providing real returns after inflation (although past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance).

Ask our financial advisors today about our proprietary low risk Bespoke Alternative to Cash Accounts (“BACAs”) as a potential alternative to some of your cash holdings that may be earning less interest than the annual rate of inflation – and causing your capital to be diminishing in value on an annual basis in real terms. We can tailor the portfolio to your individual specific risk requirements & return objectives.

Security and peace of mind

All client monies are held and managed via a secure, ring-fenced nominee account via the Private Office Asset Management custody and trading platform – full details of which are provided via the links in our “Downloads” section. This means that our clients money is absolutely safe in terms of being completely ring-fenced from this company’s or any third party company’s balance sheet, providing our client’s with total security.

Our clients have access 24 hours per day, 7 days per week to their portfolios (updated daily) via our online valuation system, and each client also receives an annual Consolidated Tax Voucher to give to their tax adviser.
